Propane Cylinders - 1 lb - Empty Single-use

This item is hazardous and requires proper disposal.

Damaged or empty propane tanks and cylinders are hazardous waste and should never be put in the garbage or recycling. They could become punctured during the collection process and cause a fire or injury. Because of the danger involved, they cost millions of dollars to recycle and dispose of properly.

Reusables can last up to 10 years and can be refilled hundreds of times. Buy refillable 1lb propane cylinders to Refuel Your Fun, reduce the impact on the environment, and save money because you only pay for the gas and filling service, not the container.
